Found Furniture


In an earlier post, Art So Cheap , I mentioned my habit of bringing discarded 
objects home from roadsides, if they appeal to me form-wise. Here's a 
collection of some of them:

This one I found yesterday. The legs are slightly rusty, but I think I can deal 
with it. I'm not sure though, if I'll paint this, since I quite like the off-white 
colour. Background textile is Maija Isola's Marimekko design, Albatrossi.

This was quite an ordinary looking plain wooden chair that I sanded and 

This is a cheap Ikea folding chair that I painted.

These were worn plain wood pair or armchairs that I fixed, sanded, painted and 
reupholstered with Marimekko Magneetti fabric.

This was one of those cheap white plastic stools that I painted.
